One Game= A Thousand Words


Start by exploring the meaning of the word "Game"

boardgames

Pawns, Wizards, Mushrooms, Dice, Power-Ups...What comes to your mind when you think of games? 
 
In this task you will have to create a word cloud using Wordle (or any other tool of your choice) to share what YOU think makes a game. Don't spend too much time on this, just quickly scrible the first few words that come to your mind. You can use your favorite game as a starting point. Here is an example:
Wordle: Games
To complete this task share a few words about yourself along with your wordle in the discussions {please embed the code at the bottom of the Wordle in your comment so we can see it}
And if you are so inclined, check what everybody else has written and create a new Wordle summing up the words your peers have used.  What patterns do you see?

    Wordle: Fantasy

    I believe a game is a way to exercise your imagination and creativity by playing as a virtual avatar and being put in certain situations to try and solve them.

    El juego es un concepto tan amplio que es aplicable a todo, no solo al orden humano. Como por ejemplo, podemos darnos las oportunidad de imaginar que la nubes juegan, el agua con las rocas en una cascada, mi perro que intenta atrapar su cola. Podemos "jugar" con las ideas, sensanciones, emociones o sentimientos de otros seres.

    A game is a deliberated distorsion of reality to let someone act unbound and unaware to social conventions or 3rd party reactions. Exploration is therefore exploited.

    Hi everyone! I think that a Big Game is something that can bring people and communities together in the same way that board games can bring a family together.

    When I hear the word Game it comes to my mind other words, like challenge, pair, score, prize, fun, time, etc. Putting them together, game could easily mean a period of time when a pair (or more) of human beings have fun completing a challenge that will turn into a score which will grant them a prize.

    Wordle: Game

    Hi guys, here's my wordle of the first things that came to mind when I thought of a game.

    For me a game is something you take part of that brings you a kind of experience that you're not used to have. That is why it becomes engaging and fun.

     i think that a good game could be a game that includes  physical activity, that means that this will be more fun than another kind of game and u will feel tired after that .

    Am i right?

    I like board games by the fireplace on a winter night, and sport games on a sunny day. To sum it up I like to think strategically, run around and laugh out loud!

    I enjoy games that involve interaction with others. Though, that doesn't mean I can't be sucked into a mindless computer game. What I enjoy most is talking, laughing, having fun with others. This is not a required element of the game, but just the natural course.
